• 1lb chicken thighs, (we used bone-in with skin)
• Seasoning blend
o 1 tsp dark brown sugar
o ½ tsp ginger powder
o 1 tsp garlic salt
o ½ tsp smoked paprika
o 1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
o ¼ tsp poultry seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Line the surface you are working on with parchment paper. With a paper towel, blot your chicken to remove excess moisture. This will help to crispen the skin.
  3. With the skin side down, sprinkle your seasoning blend on all pieces. Then flip the chicken over and sprinkle the skin side.
  4. Next place the chicken in a cast iron skillet (baking sheet or pan) and then into a 425°F oven for 30-35 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165. If you used boneless chicken your cook time will be less.
  5. Remove from the oven and enjoy a crispy and flavorful chicken dish.
